Life in Mumbai


A beautiful depiction of life in Mumbai by Trespassers in a mural at the Mumbai Urban Art Festival.

‘Refraction of Reflections’ is an installation by Trespassers that captures the kaleidoscope landscape of people, animals, boats and objects of the dock. Embedded terracotta sculptural elements make the installation appear different from each viewer’s perspective. It also invites the viewer to create their own sculptures and be a part of the artwork.
Kerala-based Trespassers are a troupe of seven artists who aim to bring art to the public and initiate a dialogue between passersby and their painted facades. Ref St+art India
